Why come to the bootcamp? The benefits for you and your business

Having a clear plan in place is a massive step forward in helping you grow your business. However, this is more than just an investment in your business. This is also an investment in you – you will gain knowledge over 3-days that you will be able to use time and time again as long as you are in business.

By the end of the 3-days:

  • You’ll be crystal clear on what you want to achieve within your business, what marketing is most likely to work and where to put your marketing efforts for maximum success.
  • You’ll have a marketing plan written down giving you a clear set of marketing actions to put the right marketing in place and a path to grow your business.
  • You’ll know exactly who your buyer is and be clear best way to engage them.
  • You’ll know the resource – manpower and money – that you will need to deliver your marketing plan to grow your business.
  • Your marketing plan will become your reference point – so when starting any marketing activities you’ll know whether they will support you on delivering your business goals, or, if not, you’ll know the marketing activities to put on the back burner or ditch all together.

Remember marketing planning is an ongoing process – you need to track your progress and measure what’s working and what’s not. We recommend a quarterly planning review with you and your team to keep you accountable, on track and motivated to keep going.


Five reasons to attend a bootcamp

Rather than continue stumbling around making no real progress or jumping into a longer term expensive consultancy or outsourced marketing engagement reduce your risk and increase your knowledge first.

Time-out – take the opportunity to have time out to really focus on your business rather than working in it.

Grow your knowledge – after attending you will be more educated about strategic marketing and planning therefore be better placed for using the right marketing to grow your business.

Be inspired to grow your business with confidence and speed – share and discuss your marketing problems with other business owners, collectively you'll inspire each other and generate powerful, creative ideas to develop your business with confidence and speed.

Get a taste of how marketing can be – you’re not jumping into long term relationship but you will leave with a clear, actionable marketing plan and be better placed to assess whether you need extra marketing support in your business.

Fixed price – a bootcamp is a one off cost with no obligation for an ongoing engagement. After you have completed the bootcamp you will be able to decide if you need additional marketing support in your business.
